Step 2 - How do I get an assessment done?

How do I get an assessment done?

There are two ways to get an assessment of the likely classification of the film or game:

  1. Apply to the Classification Board for an assessment – you need to give the Board information about the film or game you want to advertise, pay a fee and the Board will provide you with an assessment. This assessment is published on the National Classification Database, so anyone searching the database will be able to see it
  2. Get an Authorised Assessor to make the assessment – you can get an Authorised Assessor to make the assessment for you. Authorised Assessors are people who are trained and accredited by the Board to make assessments on their behalf. These assessments are not submitted to the Classification Board. You must keep details of the reasons for the assessment for 12 months after it was made, in case the Director has any questions about it.
